Western Australian Super Rugby team the Force have said that they, “remain committed to pursuing every possible means to ensure the Western Force remains a Super Rugby team in Perth.”

The Australian Rugby Union have informed RugbyWA that it intends to remove the Western Force from the Super Rugby Competition in 2018.

In a statement said,“RugbyWA remains committed to pursuing every possible means to ensure the Western Force remains a Super Rugby team in Perth.

“RugbyWA is considering all options including bringing urgent proceedings in the Supreme Court of NSW, and legal action relating to the circumstances which led it to enter into the Alliance Agreement with the ARU.”

“Whilst the board of RugbyWA is extremely disappointed with the ARU’s stated position, with the support of the Rugby community and numerous WA business identities including Mr Andrew Forrest AO we will continue the fight to retain the Force in Western Australia.”
